Newsline: Rihanna appointed as ambassador to her native Barbados

After seven years as a cultural ambassador for her native Barbados, the pop star, 30, has been appointed the nation’s “Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary,” according to a press release from the country’s Government Information Service. “Rihanna has a deep love for this country and this is reflected in her philanthropy, especially in the areas of health and education. She also shows her patriotism in the way she gives back to this country and continues to treasure the island as her home,” Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley said in the statement. “She has also demonstrated, beyond her success as a pop icon, significant creative acumen and shrewdness in business. It is therefore fitting that we engage and empower her to play a more definitive role as we work to transform Barbados.” Having already helped promote tourism to Barbados since 2008, Rihanna will now also promote the country’s education and investment efforts as part of her new responsibilities. In the statement, Rihanna was quoted as saying she “couldn’t be more proud” of being given the chance to help shape the future of her home country.
